Duct cleaning is a necessary part of maintaining an efficient HVAC system in your home, as well as keeping your home clean and protecting its indoor air quality. The ductwork inside your home’s walls and floors will gradually collect dust and dirt that enters through the return ducts. It only takes a year for a significant amount of dust to accumulate along the walls of the ventilation system and start to interfere with airflow. This will cut into the efficiency of your central heating and air. If the accumulation continues without receiving cleaning, it will begin to blow pollutants into the air of your living space, potentially affecting the health of the people inside.
The solution to this problem is regular duct cleaning from professionals. It’s important that you not attempt the cleaning yourself: it requires training and special equipment, and you may end up damaging your ducts if you try cleaning them on your own. For quality duct cleaning in Wellington, FL and the surrounding areas, call the experienced team at Envirotech Air Quality Services and schedule service.
The Methods of Professional Duct Cleaning
The main step in professional duct cleaning is for the technicians to use a power vacuum to alter the pressure inside the ventilation system first to agitate dust and other contaminants from the walls of the interior of the ducts, and then to suction them up. The duct cleaning team will seal off all the vent registers in your home to close up the ventilation system; then they will cut a hole into the main duct the leads from your central heating and air conditioning cabinet into the rest of the ductwork and seal the mouth of the power vacuum over the hole. This vacuum is able to alter the pressure of the ventilation system and then remove most of the contaminants. The professionals will also use powered rotary brushes on long lines to reach inside individual vents and provide spot cleaning for areas with heavier congestion.
For most homes, the process takes approximately an hour to complete. Once it is done, you will have ducts in the cleanest condition possible. If the technicians locate unusual contaminants or breaks and holes in the ductwork, they will inform you of the situation and offer suggestions for what you can do to fix the problem.
